Searchers discovered a body on Sunday in a wooded area of Montgomery County that is believed to be that of missing Amber Chantel Elkins. According to Tom Miller, the founder of Texas Equusearch, the body was found found near a bridge around 3:30 PM. Although there has been no positive ID of the body, it is widely believed to be that of Amber Chantel Elkins. The body has been sent to the Montgomery County Medical Examiner’s office for identification.

Search volunteers on Sunday discovered a body believed to be that of Amber Chantel Elkins, a 20-year-old Humble mother, in a wooded area of Montgomery County, an official said.

Tim Miller, founder and director of Texas EquuSearch, said the body was found near a bridge around 3:30 p.m. Officials are awaiting positive identification of the body, but believe it’s Elkins and notified her family, he said.

Elkins vanished a week ago.

“Right now it’s the worst news they could ever imagine,” said Miller. “Now it’s real. Now she’s really not coming home.”

Tim Miller stated that it appeared that the body  “was dumped in an isolated area.”

Miller said his team was searching the area off Gene Campbell Road and FM 1314 after receiving some information from detectives, their focus was on the woods near some cell towers.

“So, we just had our people out there, just concentrating on areas around these cell towers that we had information on,” said Miller.

Just the other day, Elkin’s boyfriend, James Clarke Jr, was charged with murder.

Our prayers go out to the family and friends of Amber Chantel Elkins … REST IN PEACE.

      How many young lives will we lose before something is done to change the laws on abuse in our country. This is not the first time this man was violent with this girl. She paid with her life. We let these guys walk with a PFA. What a terrible loss for her child and family. I bet this guy doesn’t spend a lifetime in jail. He will be let out in 10 to 20 years, so he can kill again.

      This is sad….wonder if any evidence can be gathered from the autopsy to aid in helping identify a potential killer/abductor?

      Another female….erased and gone senselessly.

      I am glad for the family that Tim and others were able to find her.

      Somehow we need to teach our young women how to not get involved with shady, bad people. When they are young, they have little or no experience in evaluating.
